Junos Service Provider Switching (JSPX)

Course Description Schedule

Who should attend

This course benefits individuals responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS.


Students must have basic networking knowledge and an understanding of the OSI model and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Students should also have attended the Introduction to the Junos Operating System(IJOS) and the Junos Routing Essentials (JRE) courses or have equivalent experience prior to attending this class.

Course Content

This two-day course provides students with intermediate switching knowledge and configuration examples. The course includes an overview of switching concepts such as LANs, Layer 2 address learning, bridging, virtual LANs (VLANs), provider bridging, provider backbone bridging, VLAN translation, spanning-tree protocols, and Ethernet Operation, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM). This course also covers Junos operating system-specific implementations of Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) interfaces, routing instances, virtual switches, load balancing, and port mirroring. This course is based on the Junos OS Release 10.0R2.10.
